Huge development potential combined with exceptional duck hunting and saltwater fishing situated less than 90 miles from Houston’s Galleria is the key component of this extraordinary property. Sargent Beach on the Gulf of Mexico is a few minutes drive away, or boat out of Caney Creek to East Matagorda Bay and/or the surf off Matagorda Peninsula on calm days to chase trout and redfish. This tremendous opportunity exists within a short drive from the fourth largest city in the country and the 7.1-million-person Houston MSA, the second-fastest-growing  MSA in the country. The land of Carancahua Bend Ranch transitions from higher coastal grassland prairie on the northern end of the ranch into more saltmarsh acreage that is tidally influenced in the central portion of the ranch, and finally into the tidal flats that make up the southwesternmost portion of the property. Although generally flat prairie, a naturally occurring higher ridgeline follows the west bank of Caney Creek, which forms the east border of the ranch for approximately 3.9 miles (+20,500 linear feet). On the opposite bank lies the town of Sargent, lined with river homes. The southernmost border runs approximately 1.5 miles along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the northeast end of East Matagorda Bay.

A ranch with a diverse waterfowl habitat and proximity to the big waters of the bay produces excellent duck hunting. Everything a duck needs is here—food, water, and rest areas! Bluewings, green wings, gadwall, widgeon, pintail, and canvasbacks call this area their winter home, along with an assortment of divers.

This is a working cattle ranch, complete with everything it takes to raise beef in this part of the world. Fencing, dispersed water wells and troughs, loafing sheds and a top-notch set of pens are all present. Water for livestock is shallow, coming from the Gulf Coast Aquifer. Six water wells and associated troughs are spread across the ranch.
